Ginny's Holiday Stuffing

Break sausage into small pieces and brown in skillet over medium heat. Drain fat and set sausage pieces aside.


Melt butter in deep pan over medium heat. Add celery and onion and cook lightly. Remove from heat and place in large mixing bowl. Add stuffing mix, chicken broth and water and mix well. Stir in sausage, apple, cranberries, zest, poultry seasoning and salt and pepper to taste.


Stuff in turkey or bake at 375 degrees in 13x9-inch baking dish covered with buttered foil, 1 hour. Remove foil and continue baking another 15 minutes.

There’s a pleasant surprise of lemon zest in this colorful apple-cranberry-sausage stuffing. Another surprise: It’s quite easy. Virginia Hambro, of Camarillo, says this will stuff a 20-pound turkey, but it also goes well with pork, roasts or chops.
